Kimberton Antique Show

I went to another antique show this weekend. This one was in a town called Kimberton, order in Pennsylvania. It was a great show and it was really nice seeing some of my dealer friends again.

As always there is so much to look at, ampoule and I can’t wait to get started. This spice box was probably the most wonderful thing I saw at the show! It is small, but oh my gosh, isn’t it wonderful! I know how many of you love spice boxes, as I do and for me this is the absolute best little box ever!

My friend Claudia from Ground Hog Hollow antiques had these fabulous early shutters in the best blue green paint! AND they had their original hardware still intact!!

Each shutter was numbered by the maker, like, VI, VII and VIII as I remember. How fabulous is that! Here is a photo I took of one numbered on the side of the shutter. I am still thinking on them.

Isn’t this wonderful. Those are actually etched into the sides of all 3 shutters.

I love this early butter mold. Early ones with animals are getting hard to find. I found and bought 3. Love this one with the beaver. I also bought a cow or ram, and a cow.

Right before I got ready to leave, a woman was showing this needle box to a dealer.

It belonged to her and she wanted to sell it. I love it.  The name of the store owner H. BAYLIS on one drawer, and  NEEDLES on the other, and to top it off, it has the best old original mustard paint on the top. I wanted to say, I’ll buy it, but I moved on and thought I would stop back later and see if he had it for sale. Well, he had it and I bought it.  I will be taking more photos today, so if you like it, be sure to check back later.

By this time, I was done and it was time to go home. The ride was nice. It was a beautiful day, and the countryside had many old houses along the way. When I got home, as I pulled into my driveway, and noticed a large bird, a hawk, sitting under some bushes. I was curious, and I went over to check on it. He didn’t move so I knew something was wrong.

I went inside and called our bird rescue. They told me to take a picture and send it to them. In the meantime they promised to send someone out. Within 5 minutes someone called me and 15 minutes later they were in my driveway. They were wonderful and they took him with them.  They said they would do everything they could to help him. I haven’t called them, I just want to believe that he will be well again, but I don’t know. One thing is for sure, I really admire the volunteers at the bird rescue. I am so glad I called them.

    That needle box is to die for! Being a sewer I love all old sewie things. My heart beats a mile a minute every time you come back from an antique venture.

    I love birds also and will say a prayer that your bird will be OK. You are a sweetie!

    Hi Carole! Wonderful finds! I love them ALL! Can’t wait to see the ‘ram’ butter mold as I’m especially fond of sheep & goats! lol

    I still have my eye on the resting sheep cement figure…

    We had a hawk visiting in the barn overnight recently, but he finally flew the coop in the a.m. I hope your hawk survived too!

    Hi Carole! Not sure if you will get my email but need to try anyway.

    I love that little spice box and wood like to make one for my grand daughters. Can you tell me the dimensions, what type of wood was used, any history behind it and price. Thank you ever so much!
